×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. David Showalter, MD?
The staff were very nice. However, Dr. Showalter spoke in an arrogant and condescending way. I wasn't happy with his conclusion, but that wasn't the biggest issue. It was how he presented it. I would never recommend this man. His "bedside manner" is awful.
